Boulder Community Hospital Hosts Free Health Lecture
These days fewer women are dying from breast cancer thanks to early detection and advances in treatment. In fact, breast cancer death rates have been decreasing about 2% per year since 1990.This decline in death rates means there are now more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Many have questions about how they can reduce the risk that their breast cancer will return and what they should expect after treatment ends.
To address these questions, board-certified oncologist Lori Jensen, MD, with Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers and registered dietitian Clare Tone, MS, RD, with Boulder Nutrition and Exercise Services will review the newest developments in breast cancer survivorship. Topics will range from diet, exercise and lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of cancer reappearing to managing the long-term side effects of treatment. The free lecture will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 26, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the ground floor Gene Wilson Conference Room of the Boulder Community Hospital Medical Pavilion, located at 1155 Alpine Avenue in Boulder.
Reservations are required. Attendees should call 303-441-0580 or visit bchlectures.org/breastcancer
